School of Industrial Engineering
The competence fields of the School of Industrial Engineering are industrial production and forestry. The school offers degree programmes in mechanical and vehicle engineering, electrical and automation engineering, ICT engineering, and forestry.
The common factors connecting all of the school's degree programmes are intelligent machines and systems. They combine demanding mechanics, energy and automation solutions, and information technology. Modern digitalization (internet of things) and digitalization of services are an important part of the degree programmes.
Our special fields are product development, machine design, mechanical automation, production engineering, workshop engineering, electric power engineering, automation engineering, software engineering, embedded systems, communications engineering, and forestry. We also have expertise in production economics, project management, and technological competence management.
Our school is responsible for teaching physics on all the engineering degree programmes at TAMK. Our strengths in this area are online pedagogy, laboratory work for students, and demonstrations. Many of our teachers have a doctoral degree.
TAMK's Degree Programme in Forestry is also run by the School of Industrial Engineering. The forestry programme focuses on wood sourcing and forest machines. The problem-based learning approach (PBL) is used in the forestry studies, and the methodology is being developed continuously. Our forestry students have been using a forest machine simulator for years for practising wood sourcing skills. Expertise in geographic information systems is another of our strengths.
All our students participate in project-based studies, which develop all-round professional skills. Projects of various sizes are initiated by companies and communities with particular problems or development needs. Solutions are found by either students or staff.

Working life cooperation
Our school is developing new learning environments for the bioeconomy field and production of equipment prototypes.
Our laboratories and services are available to companies, for the purpose of designing and producing prototypes at different stages of the product development process. We have a range of 3D printers, and we organize training in their use.
We collaborate with other educational institutions in the Tampere Region.
We are happy to arrange extension studies for customers' needs, in Finnish or English.
